PINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A Gobles man is dead after the Jeep he was driving went off the road and crashed into a large tree.
Around 8 a.m. Saturday, a Van Buren Sheriff's deputy was stopped by a motorist and told about a crashed vehicle at the 29th street & CR388 area on the Kalhaven Trail in Pine Grove Township.
The deputy found the driver pinned inside the vehicle; the driver, 24-year-old Jamie Scott Barber, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities believe the crash happened several hours before the crash was located. The driver was going eastbound when the Jeep started going over an embankment, was overturning, then hit a large tree.
Deputies said the vehicle was taken without permission.
